For Manchester United, Scott McTominay, Donny van de Beek and Daniel James are all doubts for the Red Devils.

A win for the hosts would move them back into the top four but United won't make it easy as they look to extend their unbeaten run in the league. 

Chelsea haven't leaked many goals since Tuchel has arrived and have fared well without Silva in the defence. It's set to be a close content but Tuchel could be complete the perfect week in the charge of the week with massive results against Atletico Madrid and then Manchester United. 

Prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Manchester United
